I bought this from the original owner, a friend of mine. He got it in the spring of 1999. It was $999 then, I need $225 out of it. I bought it about 3 months ago & have never used it as I have a newer Sony. I got it for the zoom, which is an incredible 14x Optical Zoom. But the reality of lugging 2 cameras around changed my mind real quick. It takes the picture direct to a floppie disk, so it's a no-brainer to download your pictures. Also shoots a short mpeg (movie) file too. I know it was sent back to Sony last year because he thought there was a problem, but he forgot how to focus the viewfinder. Anyway, Sony cleaned the camera out for a $300 charge too. It has an LCD sreen that tilts and you can also turn it of and/or use the viewfinder to save on batteries & in high sun. Has the steady shot feature. Comes with a nice bag, charger 2 batteries, a few disks, an infrared filter too. Owner's manual. It shoots a 480 x 640 and a 1024 x 768 pixal pictures. Has a standard and fine setting. In movie mode....a 160 x 112 (60 sec long) and a 320 x 240 (15 sec long) size mpeg. This camera has been gently used over the years, my buddy is a camera buff & has purchased several more & was going to sell this. He's not an outdoorsman, so it hasn't been lugged to the lakes, rivers, etc like my camera I'll put up some pictures if you need them, but it's in excellant condition. First $225 takes it !! This is a great camera for home use, also great for a realtor or work, and of course for your fishing and hunting shots.
